Filled Meringue Crown

Filled Meringue Crown

Host: "Mary and Paul would like you to make a filled meringue crown. And we want a family sized crown, big enough for the whole royal family. It must have three layers of meringue, at least, and it must be dazzlingly decorated."

Prue Leith: "This is the last signature challenge, so we've chosen meringue. Now, they struggled with meringue in the past, so I thought it was a good idea to go back to the meringue again. We've asked for a crown. How they achieve that is up to them. But what I am looking for, it's got to taste good, look good, and be spectacular."

Paul Hollywood: "Three tiers of meringue can be quite sweet and overwhelming, so they've got to add a little bit of tartness to it that can come from the fruit, whether it's a curd, a compote that will balance out the sweetness of the meringue."
